Adidas Progressor C Goggles Review

The Adidas Progressor C goggles offer great vision and an excellent lens changing system but struggle in some basic areas. Fit is key with any goggle you wear all day and the Progressor C will only fit the widest of faces well.

On a good note, the Quick-Shift Lenspod System is a great way to quickly change out lenses without fiddling around. If you have a very wide face and are looking to save a little over the top of the line options from the likes of Smith and Oakley, give the Progressor C a try. Otherwise, I’d keep looking.
